So poor her family can hardly make it through the season. She’s so desperate to save her family and get a good match, she’s willing to forgo love as long as has future husband is a peer.
She ends up forming a friendship with the rest of the wallflowers, agreeing to get themselves married.
Enter, Simon Hunt. A self-made man so rich it’s not funny. He has no title and Annabelle detests him. Only once she gets to know him... she decides maybe he’s not so bad after all.
I love Annabelle and Simon and all the wallflowers! The romance in this is sweet and watching Annabelle fall for Simon is amazing.
I also have to praise the female friendships in here. It’s heartwarming to see how close they become and how much they want to help each other. It’s so rare not to see anyone trying to tear someone else down to make themselves look better. A really great read!
In Autumn, we get into step into the mind of American heiress Lillian Bowman. Her family is so rich that it’s not even funny and her parents are dead set on her marrying a member of the peerage. If he does not have a title, then he’s not the one.
But Lillian isn’t the soft-spoken English woman. She’s American, bold and not one to keep her opinions to herself. So no one wants her. She sits on the sideline at balls, a wallflower.
But there is one man of the ton that she really dislikes, Marcus, Lord Westcliff. His line is the oldest in the entire country. Some say his blood is even bluer than the queen’s.
He pushes her buttons like no one else and he thinks she’s improper. Yet, they are both drawn to each other...
Lillian and Marcus are superb characters, but to me, Lillian is a step down from Annabelle. You can tell the author just loves her though, because she has a big part of each book in this series.
She’s bold and never tries to be anyone other than herself, which I just adore. A solid read.
